Látrabjarg is a 14-kilometer cliff that becomes the nesting and refuge site for tens of thousands of birds each year, including puffins, who come here to raise their young. What’s amazing is how close you can get to the birds (provided you lie down on the cliff) — they are literally within arm’s reach. Icelanders claim that Látrabjarg is the westernmost point of Europe (ironically located on the North American tectonic plate), but the actual westernmost point of Europe is in the Azores.

Látrabjarg is situated at the very end of the Westfjords, at the terminus of the unpaved Road No. 612. From the parking area, you simply head uphill into the hills and can continue for several kilometers.
